GPB Education attended the Georgia Council for the Social Studies Annual State Conference on October 19-20, 2006 in Athens, Ga. and premiered the new animated short film The Green Tree Frog: How a Bill Becomes a Law.
More than 600 educators from all over the state of Georgia gathered at the Classic Center in Athens, Ga. for the GCSS Annual Conference. Featured at the conference were 90 concurrent educational sessions and over 50 exhibiters, including GPB Education.
Participants who attended GPB Education's presentation and stopped by the GPB Education booth received a free copy of The Green Tree Frog: How a Bill Becomes a Law. Educators who viewed the film were extremely enthusiastic about it. This animated short film is correlated to Georgia Performance Standards for the eighth grade but can also be used in elementary and high school social studies classes.
Inspired by the true story of how a Georgia fourth grade class proposed the green tree frog to become the Georgia state amphibian, The Green Tree Frog: How a Bill Becomes a Law was created and produced by Georgia Public Broadcasting.
